A BIT ABOUT ME
Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing
Clients working with me can expect a compassionate, nonjudgmental and encouraging environment to effectively communicate life stressors and dive deeper into the root of emotional patterns. I believe in empowering clients to take ownership of their emotions, to speak about challenging life experiences, and identify healthy coping behaviors to lead a positive life.
My comprehensive experience includes working with BIPOC individuals, survivors of trauma, LGBTQIA+ community, individuals struggling with mood disorders or relationship issues. The therapeutic modalities used in my work utilize behavioral interventions including psychodynamic, cognitive processing, cognitive behavioral, and dialectical behavioral therapy.
Here is a little about me!
I moved to New York City in 2018 to obtain my master’s degree in Forensic Mental Health Counseling from John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Graduating from John Jay College has greatly shaped my perspectives around the social, racial, and mental health injustices in our communities, all areas I deeply care about. I love to stay active by going to the gym, dancing, and the occasional run around my neighborhood. The favorite part of my day is journaling/reading a book in my backyard while listening to the birds chirp with a hot cup of tea!
